p.2 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Aletha now makes only weekly trips up the bay. On Saturday she calls at Stella, Emerald and Bath. About Christmas she will go into winter quarters.

p.4 Some Old River Crafts - The following is a list of propellers that plied the great lakes and River St. Lawrence for the last thirty years. Many have disappeared by this time, either by storm or the tooth of time, but old timers along the St. Lawrence will still remember most of these names. Of course the list only applies to propellers, and not to tugs, side-wheelers, barges, etc. It was compiled by P. Leacy, steamboat agent at this port, and is pretty complete. Should anyone think of a propeller that ran these waters, not mentioned below, the Tribune will be glad to publish its name next week: Brantford, Indian, Colonist, St. Lawrence, Magnet, Dominion, Scotia, Asia, Africa, China, Columbia, R.M. Stanley, City of St. Catharines, City of Montreal, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Lake Michigan, East, Enterprise, Perseverance, America, Canada, Meriott, California, Celtic, Dalhousie, Dromedary, Shickluna, Armenia, Cuba, Alma Munro, Calabria, St. Magnus, Europe, Acadia, Persia, Ocean, Prussia, Zealand, Her Majesty, City of London, Bruno, Argyle, Georgian, Glen Finlis, Avon, Sovereign. [Cardinal Tribune]

p.5 District Dashes - James Burlington, late light keeper at Point Petre, Athol township, injured in fall at Picton.
